You are correct about this requirement and I've always had a bit of a
problem with it. While I wouldn't attempt a one day 50 miler, three days
is ample time if your doing it afloat. Going with the current, it is not
unusual to do 4-5 miles an hour on relatively calm waters. Four hours a
day on the water leaves you plenty of time for the required service
projects and lots of fun, too.
